Join our photography workshop in the magnificent Southwest. The southeastern
part of Utah is a glorious place to photograph, and the Arches, Canyonlands,
and Moab area is a prime location.
With blazing red sandstone, fantastical arches,
cool canyons, and clear streams and rivers, there is no shortage of photographic
In fact, this has been a prime location for movies since the 20s. Think of John Ford and John Wayne, Stagecoach, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Thelma and Louis, Geronimo, Riders of the Purple Sage, among many others, for starters.
In addition to Arches and Canyonlands,
we'll take you to some pretty special areas that we love and to which we have
gained access. You'll be able to celebrate
your passion for photography, hone your seeing and imaging skills, and learn
about the magic of light to make wonderful photographs.
This year, because of the moon phase, we'll even have the opportunity to do some night skies!
For those who want more time with Margo and Arnie, we offer the opportunity to scout and shoot with them before most of our domestic workshops. We limit this to two people per day who ride in the car with the instructors. During these days while Arnie and Margo do their own photography and final scouting for the workshop, there is also lots of individual instruction and discussions about photography.
